the separation of church and state that should be. let me play what ralph reed said on "meet the press" regarding the court and his opposition to same-sex marriage. let's play it. >> i think the issue before the court and the issue before the american people, and they have after all voted in 31 state referenceum. only three have voted the other way. so this tests very differently at the ballot box than a poll. the issue before the country is, do we have a compelling interest in strengthening and supporting the durable enduring and uniquely complimentary and pro creative union of a man and a woman. >> divorce rates -- >> no. the answer -- that would be an argument for why we ought to strengthen it. >> the reason why is because it is better for children and all the social science shows that. >> so liz, you talk about the complexity but here you have a conservative bringing it down to procreation and family. you have folks saying go after divorce. and try to fight, for example, the right to have a divorce as other posed to someone who wants to be married. in many cases they have children that they'v

do you say that? >> you know, i have no issue with ralph reed. i have to tell you i found that is painful. it pained me he was saying those things while sitting next to our cnn colleague, hillary rosen, who is a gay mother devoted to her two children. i don't think any of us can lay judgment on the type of mother little hillary rosen or any the other parents are. we have to understand as society, that sexuality, is not equivalent to morality. and there can be bad parents that are heterosexual. there can be bad parents homosexual. that's not because of sexuality. it is because they are a good parent or bad parent. and i think that it is cruel to tell a child of a loving gay couple that they are less functional and less normal and that their parents less fit to be parents. let's pace it. the cleavers are the minority in the united states right now. there are so many homes of divorced parents, single parents, and gay parents. you know. who are we to stand in judgment on these parents? the only difference, don, between a gay couple and a heterosexual couple is that a gay coupl
support gay marriage but ralph reed this is a fundamental principle for our party. what do you do? >> soul-searching in the party right now. but to joel's point earlier, this is very much a generational divide. if you look at evangelical millennials, 64% of evangelical million ennials. if you look at republican million ennials, at 58% support for same-sex marriage. america is changing. >> the number i'm always struck by, "washington post" poll, 1849 self-identified republicans. 53%. >> remarkable, generational shift. >> going forward, hillary clinton last week, she had been one of the last -- i don't want to say hold-outs but high-profile people to switch. is this a position you must have to be a serious contender going forward in democratic party politics? you must support gay marriage? >> i think this is a position that anybody running for public office is going to have to have. >> republicans included. >> absolutely. look, the country has changed. this is a position in every demographic group. the numbers you just cited, their views have changed on this over the last ten years. they hav
values. and so when i hear ralph reed or rush limbaugh, it reminds me of someone seated in solitary confinement, they're talking to themselves with their own voices echoing. >> the voices in rush limbaugh's head are strong and loud. but let's open this up to our panel in new york. karen, could we be, there's a lot of talk of this rnc document and the fact that it doesn't mention church or christianity. and some blow-back as you're seeing from evangelicals about where at the table the social conservatives sit. i will read an excerpt from the always-wise jonathan chate who said when you're overburdened with ideological baggage you're not necessarily going to throw away the heaviest thing you're carrying, you're going to throw away the thing you like the least. for people running the republican party, that's social issues. >> the problem that the republican party is having, is the value these say they espouse do not match the policies they are preaching. do not match then the political reality of the country. chad knows, i've known chad a long time, he knows this as well as anybody, th
the questions for the court this week. 4:00 today. we also heard yesterday from conservative, rolf lead -- ralph reed. >> i think the issue before the court and the issue of the american people, and they have voted in 31 state referendum initiatives for state marriage. only three have been voted the other way. this test very differently at the ballot box. the issue before the country is, do we have a compelling interest in strengthening and supporting the durable, and during, and uniquely complementary in pro credit union of man and woman. that would be an argument for why we should strengthen it. the reason why is it is better for children and all the social science shows that. "washingtonreed on press" yesterday. send us a clear it overturned in california with proposition 8 at the heart of one of two cases. you can see the line up. here is a photograph from paris. gay marriage upon it clashed with police. this is an issue not just here in the united states. hundreds of thousands of people poured into the center of the city residents plan to legalize gay marriage and adoption. a couple of othe
